49ers fans who need to update their super bowl wardrobe have plenty of time and options. there are shops and stores all over the bay area happy to sell you anything from flags to hats to jerseys. we've talked to one fan who stopped off to stock up on 49ers gear before heading to new orleans. >> i'm coming here to buy some niner shirts for the new orleans. i got my hat. i'm good to go. and yeah. next thursday. >> very lucky. there's even an official merchandise trailer in san francisco on market street at justin herman plaza. and if you can't find what you want right away, the merchants we spoke with say new stuff is hitting the shelves every day. well, the bigger the better. that's the rule of thumb for super bowl fans looking to buy a new t.v. >> cbs 5 consumer watch reporter julie watts explains what's the best size and the best type of big screen for that big game. >> reporter: super bowl season is t.v. buying season. it even beats the holidays. >> i just want a big flat screen t.v. for 46 to 50 inches.
6:44 pm
>> reporter: but with so many options, plaza, l.c.d., l.e.d., smart t.v., what's a football fan to do? >> the plasma t.v.'s are still the rock stars. >> reporter: brian cooley says your best bet for the big game is plaza. >> not as thin as many of the le.d.lcd's not as sexy but we recently did our list of the best cheap, best value and best high-end flat panel t.v. and a plasma model won in every single category. >> reporter: with a higher refresh rate, plasmas handle motion better, meaning that touchdown pass will be crystal clear and plasmas allow for better off-angle viewing. >> when you have folks over to watch the game you may overpack that living room and people are sitting left and right in different chairs trying to look at the screen. a plasma is very good at that. >> reporter: but while l.e.d.'s may not be ideal for the big game their picture is brighter and more vibrant for every day viewing. now, when choosing a t.v. cooley says size does matter. think 50 inch for the average
6:45 pm
living room, which you should be able to find for under a grand. and while he says you do definitely want a 10 80sp, just how smart does your t.v. really need to be? >> the so-called smart t.v.s, which are just internet connected t.v.s may not add a whole lot in terms of watching football or the super bowl because the n.f.l. doesn't make much of anything available for streaming. however you definitely want a smart or connected t.v. going forward. i would not buy a new t.v. today that doesn't have those features built in. >> reporter: the best day to buy a t.v. is the day after the super bowl. when prices begin to come back down. and buyer beware of a manufacturer who promises a faster processor, or something else that sets them apart. for the most part, they all use the same parts. on the consumer watch, julie watts, cbs 5. chief meteorologist paul dianno is in wall not creek with the mobile weather lab. >> if you ever wondered what we did in between our weather hits to get things ready, this is the answer right here.
6:46 pm
i am inside the cbs 5 mobile weather lab. we have a computer set up on the back of the seat here. and i can see all the weather information and call up what i want to use for this particular weather cast. one thing to point out. rainfall for today is zero. pretty obvious. you were outside today. look at this as i show you over here. rainfall for the week, zero. rainfall for the month since we turned this on a week and a half ago. zero. we need a change here and we'll see it. but this is a vehicle with lots of great technology. here's what it means for you: you have to schedule your day around this. we're here in wall nut creek. tonight at soccer practice there's lots of kids doing their practice right now. and they're doing it without the rainfall. but if you are a mom or dad you know a little change in the weather can mean a big change in your plans for the evening. that's what we're seeing coming up 24 hours from now. soccer practice will not be dry tomorrow night. it has been a very dry month. let me show you weather maps here. rainfall compared to normal. livermore, 14% of normal for the month.

6:48 pm
average for this time of year. we have been above average for the past couple days at least in the afternoon. so future cast shows some showers north of the golden gate early, mainly off shore. everybody gets rain tomorrow afternoon and evening. speaking of tomorrow, cloud cover, showers, temperatures, still mild but not as mild. palo alto 61. coopertino 62. walnut creek tomorrow 59 for a high. you hit the mid 60s today. san ramon 60, vallejo 58, and north of the golden gate, only mid to upper 50s. santa rosa 57, petaluma 56, daily city 57 degrees. scattered showers tomorrow, partly sunny skies coming up on thursday, and friday we cloud up again on saturday. another rain chance coming up over the weekend. sunday showers are likely mid 50s before clearing out monday and tuesday. not a dramatic change, not a huge temperature drop but things are changing. back live in walnut creek, soccer practice dry tonight. soccer practice or any outdoor activity tomorrow, not dry. rain returns to the forecast.

gore's career, the 49ers running
6:52 pm
back was putting up pro bowl numbers but playing on a team that was 22 take a good look over my shoulder. would you want to tackle him? in the first six years of frank gore's career he was putting up pro bowl numbers but playing on a team 22 games under 500. >> happy. it's been a long eight years. we been struggling, struggling, struggling. the same guys in the locker room who finally got the right guys in front of us. been a long time. we came a long way from being the last place niners, to now going to the super bowl. >> gore suffered two knee injuries in college that allowed the 49ers to pick him in the third round of the 2005 draft. now, since then, he's become the 49ers all time leader in rushing touchdowns. sunday he was seen on the sidelines having a spirited conversation with jim harbaugh, something like just give me the ball, will you? he went on to score two touchdowns, including the game
6:53 pm
winner. >> nobody does it better than frank gore. and sometimes we do have conversations on the sideline, and what he sees, what he thinks will work, and we bat it around. sometimes during the game. >> a guy like frank gore, who either you know busted his butt for a long time. he deserves to be in the spotlight. you know, everybody deserves to know not just how great he's been this year and last year but when he came into the league in 2005. did the raiders' coach sabotage their last super bowl appearance 10 years ago? yes, according to one former star receiver. tim brown says head coach bill callahan was essentially playing to lose against the bucks coach and friend john gruden. bucks crushed the raiders 48- 21. brown said callahan changed the game plan from a running based offense to a pass game and he did twit days prior to the super bowl, something that's very uncommon, especially
6:54 pm
before such a big game. >> the guys talking about sabotage? absolutely. we knew how much he loved gruden. we knew how much he hated the raiders. we knew the fact that he had walked off the field on us a couple times. so we knew there was no love with him and the raider organization. basically we're going to change the game plan. you know, we think we can throw the ball against these guys and that's what we've done all year so that's what we'll do. and everybody was like what? from >> jerry rice was tim brown's team rate on that raiders team, and he echoed brown's comments on e.s.p.n. >> for some reason, and i don't know why, bill callahan, he did not like me. and he was that type of coach. and some of the things that happened with him walking off the field during the game, you know, not being happy about certain situations. and i was very surprised that he waited to the last second. and i think a lot of the players, they were surprised, also. so in a way, maybe because he didn't like the raiders, he
6:55 pm
decided to hey, look, maybe we should sabotage this a little bit, and -- and let john gruden go out and win this one. >> yeah. awfully hard to believe. other raiders on that team, including rich gannon the quarterback and linebacker bill romanowski denied brown's version of events. the n.b.a. the maloof brothers agreed to sell the kings to a seattle based group. today sacramento mayor kevin johnson is appealing to the fans of seattle to keep the kings in sacramento. >> i want to say to the folks in seattle. when i played in the n.b.a. for 12 years, seattle had some of the best fans in all of the n.b.a. and no different than sacramento. incredible fans. and when they lost their team, a couple years ago, it was devastating to me, because those fans fought like crazy, they were rowdy. but they cheered on the home team. and i strongly believe they do deserve an n.b.a. team at some point. just not ours.
6:56 pm
[ cheers and applause ] >> johnson is hoping to come up with enough money from local investors to match the seattle offer and keep the kings in sacramento for good. >> where's the n.b.a. want that franchise do you suppose? >> i think they want stability yet they'll have a brand new arena in seattle, and they need to get a new arena in sacramento if they intend to keep that team. i like the local rivally. warriors up by 80. good for the bay area. we'll see. >> thanks, dennis. for news throughout the evening, the latest is always on >> back at 11. good evening this is flo.
